ODBCThe Washington Business Journal’s Michael Neibauer has gotten his hands on some designs for the new Old Dominion Boat Club (ODBC) building which is going where the old Beachcomber/Interarms building is located at the foot of Prince Street. You can view the rendering at the link above.

As a reminder, the ODBC members formally voted this past summer to accept Alexandria’s offer to move to the old Beachcomber/Interarms building in a land-swap deal where the ODBC will receive $5 million from the City of Alexandria.

The new building’s concept is on the docket of the upcoming Board of Architectural Review hearing on October 1.
